Michele Chiarlo founded his winery in 1956 with one clear vision: acquire the best crus in Piedmont to make wines that express the essence of the territory.

Located in Calamandrana in the Monferrato, Michele Chiarlo makes wines from some of Piedmont’s most prestigious crus: Cannubi and Cerequio in Barolo, Asili and Faset in Barbaresco, and Rovereto of Gavi.  The winery also owns one of the most beautiful estates of the territory, La Court, from which it makes Barbera and Nizza DOCG, the newest denomination of Barbera that earned a DOCG in 2014.

The winery only vinifies native Piedmontese grapes as varietal wines, using just Nebbiolo, Barbera, Cortese, and Moscato.

Certified by VIVA Sustainable Wine in 2011, Michele Chiarlo follows an integrated and sustainable agricultural approach, closely monitoring their environmental impact and all stages of production.

The winery’s estate also includes the Art Park La Court, inaugurated in 2004 as the first open-air art museum among vineyards, with works by Emanuele Luzzati, Ugo Nespolo, Giancarlo Ferraris, and Chris Bangle; and the Relais Palas Cerequio, the first wine resort expressly dedicated to the great crus of Barolo, where half a century of Barolo vintages are stored. The Relais includes the restaurant Vertigo, and offers a unique tasting option with over 400 labels made from the nine greatest crus of Barolo.

The Art Park La Court and Relais Palas Cerequio are both within the “Vineyard Landscapes of Langhe-Roero and Monferrato”, a UNESCO World Heritage since 2014.
